QCTO Notice December 2017 to all Training Providers
Thank you. So too it is possible.
Thanks for the info. I did not know some moments. which I just confirmed for myself. But still, even speaking English, we speak a completely different English in America and Britain.
To learn exactly the American variant or the British one needs from native speakers. Otherwise, everything will be a little different. There are whole aggregators of language courses where teachers are native speakers and train entrants under special programs. These are the courses we should use.

QCTO / Foundational Learning Competence
« Last post by ETQA Administrator on July 03, 2018, 02:08:19 PM »
Foundational Learning Competence (FLC) is a part qualification that consists of two learning areas: Communication and Mathematical Literacy. It outlines the minimum level of competence required for optimal functioning in the world of work and for occupational learning at NQF Levels 2-4. It is a part qualification registered at NQF Level 2 and carries 40 credits in total. Each learning area carries 20 credits.

The FLC is directed at learners in occupational qualifications registered on the NQF at Level 2, 3 and 4. It is a compulsory component for all new qualifications developed by the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO ) at NQF levels 3 and 4.

This does not mean that developers of qualifications at NQF Level 2 cannot include Foundational Learning Competence as a requirement.

Each learning area consists of components that are ‘foundational to’ occupational qualifications at NQF Levels 2 to 4. The FLC is intended to address the skills and knowledge required for occupational learning across the FET sector.

The following documents describe the learning required for the FLC:
1. The Foundational Learning Competence Part Qualification (which contains the Exit Level Outcomes and Associated Assessment Criteria for both Communication and Mathematical Literacy, SAQA ID: 88895).
2. The Foundational Communication in English: Curriculum Framework.
3. The Foundational Mathematical Literacy: Curriculum Framework.

These documents outline the knowledge, content, applied skills, range  statements and assessment requirements of the FLC. The curriculum documents for Foundational Communication and Foundational Mathematical Literacy outline the necessary ‘learning’ skills for the learner to succeed in occupational or trade training. The curricula set out the areas of knowledge, skills and processes that should be covered in each learning area. They include learning outcomes and the scope and contexts in which these can be learned or practised, as well as learning activity guidelines and illustrative exemplars for different skills and tasks.

The curricula do not represent actual learning programmes. Providers will need to develop or adapt their own materials. The learning materials should be contextualised to suite the particular occupational sector.

The curriculum documents are available on the QCTO and Independent Examinations Board (IEB) websites.

The focus in Foundational Communication is on developing reading, writing, speaking and listening skills that will enable the learner to function optimally in the workplace, to enable the learner to deal with further learning and to access occupational training materials and related assessments. The focus in Foundational Mathematical Literacy is on using and responding to mathematical ideas and applications in
an occupational learning content and the application of knowledge at different levels of complexity.
QCTO / Part qualifications

Part qualifications
The curriculum components of each type of unit standard constitute "part qualifications?

For example, all the knowledge unit standards in a qualification would together be recognised as a "part qualification?. "Any one, two or three of these curriculum components can be separately, nationally assessed and certificated, in which case they will be registered on the NQF as part qualifications alongside the full qualification/s of which they are a part'. Other learning achievements that will be recognised on the OQF as part qualifications are National N-Certificates (N4-N6) (NATED or N-courses) and the Foundational Learning Competence prescribed for all occupational qualifications at Levels 3 and 4. The NQF is already adapted to register part qualifications, as reflected on the SAQA website.

QCTO Occupational qualifications sub-framework introduces two types of qualifications to be registered on the OQF.

The National Occupational Qualification: It is a full qualification of 120 or more credits, and will be associated with a trade, profession or occupation (or specialisation within an occupation).

Occupational Awards: minimum of 25 and maximum of 119 credits. Occupational qualifications will be based on occupations listed in the Organising Framework for Occupations (OFO), and could be on all 10 NQF levels.
